“Would really give this one 2.5 stars. Not nearly as good as the first book in the series. I kept waiting for something exciting and new to happen and it didn't.”Elizabeth L wrote this review Monday, July 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Meg Cabot usually hits homeruns but I think she struck out with Overbite. I can understand that she might want to exxpand beyond her usual fare but this foray into vampire fiction falls flat.”Carolyn B wrote this review Monday, March 19, 2012.

“The legend of Dracula has been stated the Vlad The Impaler was so grief stricken by the death of his wife's suicide that he lashed out at the people he felt were responsible and randomly killing people as a way of seeking revenge. Now his son has been struggling with the internal conflict within himself between good and evil and has become the most wanted man by the Palatine, a secret police of the Vatican responsible for ridding the world of evil wherever it is found.
Meena Harper on the other hand has her own conflict, one being in love with Lucien Antonescu, the son of Dracula and working for the Palatine, hunting him down. She has a unique gift that allows her to predict how everyone she meets will die. Using it, she has helped people save their lives instead and has altered their future in a positive way. Her rival at the Palatine is Alaric Wulf who has vowed to personally kill Lucien if he can find him, however Meena believes that he still possesses a goodness within himself that should be protected and used to fight evil in the world. But Alaric isn't the slightest bit convinced and will stop at nothing to drive his sword into Lucien's heart.
When a new breed of vampires begins attacking New York's tourists, the hunt for the head vampire begins with a vengeance. Meena is still struggling to deal with the love she feels for Lucien and that a dream she is being plagued with is the answer that she needs to share with him. It is a dream of him as a small boy with his mother just before she commits suicide and one which holds the key to unlock a deep secret that will change all their lives.
I received Overbite by Meg Cabot compliments of William Morrow, a division of Harper Collins Publishers for my honest review. Being a fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer series on television, this book definitely took me back to the relationship shared between Buffy and Angel in regards to Meena and Lucien. The story is well written, filled with action and suspense and one whose ending was great and unexpected. I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to fans of vampire novels with a love story twist! This was an unexpected change for me, since this is the same author of The Princess Diaries, but I loved her ability to tell a great story and keep the reader entertained. ”
“I wish I had read Insatiable first, but, since there was no mention of Overbite being a sequel on the cover, I didn't really think that it would matter. I enjoyed it, but I think it would have been better to have read about the events of the first book, rather than rely on tidbits of relevant history found in this story.
“Although I thought it was better than Book 1, it could have been really good, if she spent more time building up the suspense. The story seemed too fast and all the characters seemed rather shallow.”Cindi H wrote this review Monday, March 5, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
